Sounds like

heat related and since the trans is cooled by the fluid inside and by a center radiator, I'd look at the fluid level.

When did you last change the fluid and filter? Lifetime really isn't. Also if you have a Durametric you could check for fault codes in the trans. ED

I just did a TIP service on my 2000 S. Fluid was very dirty and I believe it was a good liter low, maybe more. Shifts a lot better now. The TIP electronic plug coming out of the trans has a connector to the harness...someone else had a problem and found dirt and grime had made a connection weak...cleaning solved his problem.
